OVERPRICED AND NOT WORTH EVERY PENNY
Dec 2020 • Family
I came here at 2020 Christmast , after paying visit to my Grandmother grave.

Well, i visit this place for first time at 2010 with my family and this place , well , i cant say its bad or good either, i would gave 3.5 stars if i can review this place back then.

Yesterday , since my father love gardening activities and want to buy some seeds , we decide to meet this place . Well , as expected , after 10 years , this place far from our expectation.

1. Ticket price is too overpriced and the ticket are divided into 3 package : (the ticket price is for one person) for only buying seeds ticket you should pay for Rp. 20k (equal to $1.5) , Bus Ride + Animal upFeeding / Boat riding ticket for Rp. 40k (equal to $3) , and new one , Drive thru Rp. 85k (equal to $6) . And this Drive Thru is totally over priced , for using your own vehicle , you have to paid Rp. 85K and its for each person who ride inside the car . EACH ! so if you bring the whole group with 4-6 with your own SUV / minibus , you have to paid around Rp. 510k (equal to $37). The management more like leeches that suck every penny you had.

2. Based on the overpriced thing , here come the facilities and attraction they serve. Luckly we choose the 40k package , but for me in this 40k package with total 4 person = Rp.160k , we expect for more attraction site from this place , but we only saw slum and neglected so called "FRUIT GARDEN" ! What kind of fruit garden but all.you can see only a pasture with 1-3 fruitless and leafless Trees's , also some wooden junk . About the lake , wow , if you imagine in this lake you can saw goose , swan or duck oh you must be disapointed , all you can see only neglected and wethered lotus , also unused raft and boat neglected at the lakeside . Nothing you can see here , since we choose Animal Feeding (since the package dont give you any details of what animal you are going to fed , but i guess it must be only sheeps and cows). Well the rain start , animal feeding were skipped due to weather , great isnt it?

Well, this will be the last time for me and my fam to visit this place .

POOR SERVICE, POOR FOOD, LITERALLY EVERYTHING IS POOR
Apr 2019 • Business
I am a tutor in one of the oldest tourism university in Bandung.

I organized my students trip to visit Mekarsari on 8 - 10 April 2018. As the purpose of our visit is educational programs, we bought 5 (educational) tour packages from Mekarsari: Petualangan Kanalzon, Fieldtrip, Back to The Green World, Fruity World Tour and Paddy Village.

Here are the problems we experienced during our trip:

1. On the first day, Mekarsari send their high school intern as our guide, they had poor product knowledge and cannot even explain properly to my (college) students. As a group who came to study about a theme park, Mekarsari has failed to meet our expectation. We gain nothing from most of the packages we bought.

2. One of the PIC whom I contacted with, informed me that the tours' duration (each of them), will take at least almost 3 hours. The fact that my students had to experience that one of the packages (Kanalzon) only last for 10 minutes. Even their staff have poor knowledge of their own programs.

3. The fruity World tour was another problem. Our students not even given any chance to study anything during this tour. the guide only took them to the starfruit garden which was not bearing the fruits at all, given a sort of "welcome drink" (guava juice), and then DONE. the guide said he/she cannot explain anything since the fruits weren't there. DUDE SERIOUSLY?! can't you just explain about how to grow the trees, how to taking care of them, how to harvest them, anything! They are just legit lazy.

4. On their website, it is clearly stated that their cabin type accommodation only accommodates up to 4 people maximum. But when our travel agent asking for further information, Mekarsari's sales person said that 'They could accommodate up to 5 people'. YOU MAD??? look how tiny the space is! Even 4 people will be struggling to move here and there.

For those who would like to visit this place please think twice, thrice, ..., ...

As a (college students) group who visit with the purpose of gaining knowledge about theme park management and product knowledge, Taman Buah Mekarsari has failed us badly.

Nothing in the park
Feb 2019 • Family
Disappointed as the park offers nothing except for some local fruits. No much facilities and the entrance fee does not justify the attraction

As an indonesian, seeing park and plants stuff is not an extraordinary moment. Mekarsari should've change my perception by what they serve to us. But it turns out to be just 'meh'. If you really interested about various indonesian fruits and plants, this place probably good for you but if you expect beautiful flower or beautiful surrounding you won't find any of that. But overall this place is worth visit.

Education Park needs upgrade
May 2018 • Family
I already visit this park for a couple of times. In its older age, Mekarsari was better and more organized.
To get this park we use personal vehicle (car) from Jakarta via Jagorawi Toll Road. Is there any public transportation going this park in one ride? As far as I know, none. So if you're planning to visit, you better rent your personal vehicle like travel bus or car.
The entrance ticket is Rp.25.000 with a lot of extra activities you can add-on according to your preference. The ticket personel are quite helpful and ready to give you assistance. Once inside you can do a lot of activities. I recommend do the train tour first. This a trackless train (or bus) that will drive you around the fruit field, deer observation, and to the lake (activities: water activities, outbond point, children bouncy castle, picnic spot, bridge view, etc). After that you can ride back again to the front section to do more activities like 3D-Trick art museum, children playground, fruit and souvenir shopping, plants shopping, etc. Food kiosk are available at front section with local menu. The parking space are wide (car and bus). It will charge you Rp.20.000 flat rate for car parking space (so a whole day tour will benefit you more than two hour visit). This park located next to Water Kingdom Waterpark (so it's a good thing to plan visiting them in a sequence due to their location).

Lesson learned from our recent visit:
1. The park is quite vacant (not crowded) in fasting month.
2.Most Food kiosk is closed during fasting time (so if you're planning to eat, bring it from home). This park allowed outside food.
3. Train tour is a long waiting. When its crowded, we wait for our turns to ride due to large amount of que. When its not crowded, we wait for the train to be full seated and it sometimes take about 15-30 minutes. So, be prepare to wait.
4. Bring your insect repellent. It is a fruit field so you'll find ants, mosquitos, and other passing by.
5. Bring your hat and umbrella. This will protect you from sun and rain since the pathway has little shelter only in its visit points.

Very Big park, Relaxing time with family....need to be maintained more !!!
Feb 2018 • Family
Hello Travelers,

First let me tell you this is very nice park, spread over very very big area so you cannot cover all by walk or not sure by car as well.

We visited this place 2 weeks back. Its nice place to visit for day or stay inside the park.
About stay :
We were 3 families with kids, and opt to stay for one night inside the park.
There are few options for rooms inside the park. One tree house type, one made near to lake within container & also with tent options.
WE stayed in tree house type rooms. Tree house rooms are located right inside the park and nicely placed. Construction is similar to real tree houses. You have all facilities in the room. You have 24 hrs support service team around your room. Also security guard. So secured location. However in night time if you are single family may be you will get bored, since limited option once all park entertainments got closed after 5.00 PM evening. If you are going with 2 families or more, you can enjoy bonfire as well as barbecue. They have location to prepare food and also barbecue. So its good enjoyment at night time. Around you, its dark night and nobody really disturbs you.
Its really lonely and may sometimes feeling alone.
Need to be careful with grass around, if you see any unwanted visitor. Also about mosquito, so carry repellent cream. They do provide electric repellent machine in room but its better to carry cream to use outside as well.
You have enough facilities to make food and enjoy. You can make really musical night.

Wake up in the morning and you get true green view around you, you have fresh air, soothing sunlight and beautiful landscape. Take a short walk around and enjoy fruit plantation. They do have deer park, where you can see deer from very close and feed them as well. So its worth to spend one night with friends and family here.
They also provide simple Indonesian Breakfast ( Nasi Goreng) which was also tasty and sufficient.

About attractions in the park : You do have some water sports, cycling, Outbound games, kids garden & water park inside the garden. Its available at reasonable for this enjoyments.
Also they provide fruit garden tour visiting some specified fruit plantation areas. I think its fixed tour and not really seasonal one. They took us to Snake fruit garden, Manggis garden and Rambutan garden ( no fruits really seen). Anyways you get these fruits outside at very abandon and cheap so only to see this if you visit Mekasari its not worthy tour.
We have been to 3D art gallery, which is worth to see and make pictures
You can also purchase fresh fruit at very reasonable price, we liked it.
You have small plant nursery, where you can buy some plants for taking back home.

For vegetarian people, NO VEG FOOD AVAILABLE INSIDE EXCEPT FRUITS.

Our first day end with enjoying boating, fast boat, cycling, kite playing with kids, Fish foot spa.

Second day after checkout, we have been to Water park located inside, its entry is 95000 IDR on weekend, but its not so good and worthy. Very crowd, not so much rides, water not so clean, kids cannot go to available rides, so we don't like it much.

overall experience : Stay was good, relaxing, staff near room very friendly and helpful.
Water park not so good, kids area play area is OK,
Very green plantation around, and very dark after evening, very less lighting inside park or on internal roads.

Must visit place once, if possible stay for night inside.

Another Hobit House
Jun 2017 • Family
This is it, another Hobit House in Indonesia, I am sick with this attractions. Too many Hobit House in Indonesia, and most of them make the same Hobit House. There is nothing special in this park for adult without kids, it's good for my nephew,but it's just a park for me.
